Everyone knew Terri as the life of the party! She loved spending time with family and friends and never missed an opportunity to celebrate life. She always made the holidays extra special. Everyone knew how much she loved to decorate. When you walked into the house it felt so happy and festive, and of course there was the delicious food! No one ever went home hungry. Terri also loved the beach which she frequented with both her family and friends over the years. She was a lover of music, art, books, and travel and most of all valued and cherished her time with loved ones. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
